WHAT CAN WE DO?

UAL micro-teaching session // Weds 24th. 10am.


Our mini enquiry:

  1. To consider the relevance of Southern Epistemology to social innovation and sustainable design practice. 
    _ What are our world views, what influences them, and how might we challenge them?
    _ What influences do our world views have on us as designers, change makers?
  2. To document this mini-enquiry using clay, and our own hands.
    _ What is our relationship to nature and natural material as thinkers, designers and makers?
    _ What is our connection to embodied practice in visual communication?

The Global South

epistemology > the study of knowledge
southern epistemology > the study of global knowledges

 

“In a world of appalling social inequalities people are becoming more aware of the multiple dimensions of injustice, whether social, political, cultural, sexual, ethnic, religious, historical, or ecological. Rarely acknowledged is another vital dimension: cognitive injustice, the failure to recognise the different ways of knowing by which people across the globe run their lives and provide meaning to their existence”

PROVOCATION //

How are we going to solve the worlds problems with the same tools, and the same thinking, and the same powers that were used to created them?

  • Design, free of a designer.
  • Collectivism. Made by and for many.
  • Progress v’s process. Taking your time, undoing, repairing, being.
  • Beyond known knowledge. Having faith, finding spirit, relinquishing control.
Alebrije of Oaxaca, Mexico
